Grandpa Joe's Barrister Cabinet

My grandparents, Joe and Mildred, had this cabinet for as long as I can remember. You can see it in home movies they made when I was first learning to walk. They collected Hummels and they were stored here. There was also a beautiful nativity set in this cabinet, too. My mother passed this cabinet to me today. I got it home and had it set up in two places before I decided this was the right place. My grandmother also had berry colored dining room walls, and since the cabinet was always in a dining room, I imagine it must feel right at home in mine. I decided to store my collection of teapots in it for now. The picture above the cabinet was cross stitched by my MIL for our 25th wedding anniversary five years ago. The white candy dishes belonged to my grandmother, too. The photo is of my grandpa Joe.
